OR – Arc’teryx Atom SL

The Atom jacket has long been one of Arc’s most popular designs but it just too warm for late spring through early fall. Arc’teryx has answered this with the new Atom SL, coming Spring 16.


The Atom SL retains all of the styling of the heavier variants but uses less Coreloft insulation in order to work for those chilly summer nights in the desert or on a mountain. Additionally, it features a low profile uninsulated stormhood, low profile Torrent fleece side panels and the new No-Slip Zip which incorporates a “speed bump” every 14th tooth so that the zipper won’t open all the way to your chest with a simple tug.

The Atom SL will be offered in several colors but remeber, this isn’t a LEAF piece. The Grey seen here will work pretty well for most folks who want to use this on the job.

    Looks great! Reminds me of a PCU L5 with a bit of insulation.

    I can dig it.

    I have the Atom Lt jacket and vest. Really amazing gear! This looks about the same weight.

    Time to set some money aside.

    I wish they made a Squamish hoodie with hand pockets.

    Pay attention Arc’teryx…NO reflective logos on civilian products in black, gray, or earth / subdued tones.

    Save the reflective logos for the orange, red, or other bright colored products.

    I love my civilian Atom. I was going to invest in an Equilibrium jacket from TAD when they re-stock, but i might wait and end up doing this instead.
